Doc Rivers said Michael Finley will be active tonight in Milwaukee, but it remains unsure how much he’ll play. (Boston Globe)
Finley’s activation means one Celtic will have to be deactivated, as only 12 players can be active for any given game. ESPNBoston’s Chris Forsberg half-heartedly nominated Tony Allen, at least for the time-being. Allen played only two minutes against Washington while nursing an injured hip.
My vote? As much as it hurts me to say, I’d have to deactivate Shelden Williams. With the Celtics holding a solid four-man rotation, Williams is the odd man out and has been just about all season. He’s a pro’s pro, but will never crack the rotation as long as everyone stays healthy.
Why not deactivate Scal? Because he’s a bit more versatile than Williams. And he also has one hell of a spray tan.
